Driving an EV will certainly be a unique experience to first-timers. The car has a range of 330km to 400km per charge. Charging time is around 20 to 30 minutes. To make the most of the range, you have an option of the Porsche's Intelligent Range Manager. This innovative software system adjusts the climate control and maximum speed when the battery range gets low. Thereby ensuring that you reach a pre-programmed destination.
Once on the road, however, you have the awesome power of a sports Porsche with style, class and pizazz. It is silent – for those die-hards who want the thrill of noise – crank up the sound! You can turn on the ‘Porsche Electric Sport Sound’ and get the mood going. If you prefer a relaxed, quiet drive – leave it off.
In the city, this model is nifty, responsive and a dream to drive. To get the race-track feel, try it on the Strada Statale in Italy or the Autobahn in Germany. The blistering speed will take your breath away. It rides on standard air springs and adaptive dampers, giving a smooth and comfortable drive that absorbs any shocks in the road surface. Test your skills with a choice of Range, Normal, Sport and Sport+ Drive Modes.
